Event description

Description

The Corrections Ministry of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is hosting a conference - "The Face of Corrections Ministry" at St. Paul's Catholic Center (lower level), 1413 East 17th Street, Bloomington, IN 47408-1602.


Who should attend? Clergy, lay volunteers, those in corrections professions, and anyone interested in learning more about Corrections Ministry. Parish teams especially encouraged to attend.

The day will begin with a welcome from Dcn. Marc Kellams, Coordinator of Corrections Ministry for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, followed by Msgr. William F. Stump, Vicar General of the Archdiocese, who will add his own words of welcome and a few comments. We will then pray together the Liturgy of the Hours. The day will include interactive concurrent breakout sessions, addressing the nuts and bolts issues of interest to corrections ministry volunteers. There will also be a panel discussion of former inmates on their experiences while incarcerated, and how ministry volunteers have affected their lives.

The Keynote Speaker will be Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ, of Dead Man Walking fame, and leading advocate for the abolition of the death penalty. Sr. Helen writes, “The death penalty is one of the great moral issues facing our country, yet most people rarely think about it and very few of us take the time to delve deeply enough into this issue to be able to make an informed decision about it." She will review the Church’s evolving position on the death penalty, and will invite you to take that time, to learn, to explore and to reflect. Books written by Sr. Helen will be available for purchase.


No fee for the conference, but a free-will offering will be accepted. A complimentary lunch will be provided. Registration begins at 8:00 am with the program beginning promptly at 8:30 am.

**You will need to complete a separate registration for each individual attending.**
